    I have been working at American University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    AU embraces multiculturalism and progressiveness wholeheartedly. It is a quiet and pretty campus on the outskirts of Washington, DC. The university is also very committed to be socially and environmentally conscious.

    Cons

    While the university offers a lot of benefits to staff, its pay is not as competitive as it could be. Staff between departments don't necessarily know each other, outside of those offices your work requires direct interaction. This is somewhat due to a culture of people either staying only 2-5 years or over 20 years.
